'When it comes to nutrition, it is very important that you have the right to freedom of choice and information. Unfortunately, organizations such as the American Dietetic Association (now calling itself the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics or AND) are threatening your freedom of choice about health and nutrition.
The AND has pushed state laws to block almost anyone, except their registered dietitians (RDs), from legally giving nutritional advice.
Their mission is to censor the broader nutrition community, which includes many well trained and educated practitioners, such as clinical nutritionists, pharmacists, naturopathic doctors and traditional naturopaths, acupuncturists, herbalists, nurses, mental health professionals, homeopaths, personal trainers, and the like.
Though it may seem incredible that laws have been crafted to create a de facto monopoly for one private group, this is exactly what's happened. Why should you be concerned?'
